A British tourist drowned when the traditional felucca sailboat he was aboard capsized in the Nile River.
The recently married couple were sheltering under the foredeck after a freak storm blew up at night. The boat quickly became swamped with water because of the heavy rain and waves whipped up by gale-force winds.
The husband, a French school teacher, pushed his wife and two other tourists to safety out of a hatch on the deck. He then tried to save himself and became trapped and drowned as the wooden boat capsized at its mooring
